A M King designed and built a 500,000-sf greenfield food distribution and cold storage facility for ALDI Inc. in South Windsor, CT, revisiting the site twice in subsequent years for extensive expansion projects.
A M King provided property consulting, design and construction services for the original project, which was completed in 2008. We secured more than $10 million of state and local incentives for the owner, delivered extensive off-site roadway construction and improvements, and removed hazardous material from portions of the site. The massive project included cooler and freezers, dry warehouse and Class A office space.
In 2018, A M King returned to complete the first phase in a sizeable expansion and renovation project, bringing the total facility area to 670,000 sf. Highlights included a 105,000-sf renovation of existing perishable space, truck apron expansion for trailer parking, photovoltaic solar extension, and transformation of excess topsoil into onsite wildlife habitats.
In late 2021, we completed the comprehensive corporate office renovation that showcases the commitment ALDI has to its employees. From the beginning the goals of this office project were primarily prompted by the desire for enhanced functionality and flexibility, improved workflow and creative aesthetics. Some overarching ideas for achieving those objectives included utilizing glass wall systems for visibility, promoting collaboration through space planning, and improving acoustics.
